Help for Prednisone acne

Post by mtbargeman » Tue Dec 09, 2008 8:56 am

Hi, Yall!

In our local paper is a column that runs once a week, called People's Pharmacy. Someone wrote in this week with the tip of putting Milk of Magnesia on your face with a cotton ball, thick, and letting it dry before washing off with warm water and a cloth. It works wonders. My face was all broken out from a recent pred-pack for a joint flare. I used it once yesterday, and the acne decreased by almost half! I'm going to make this a sticky!
Good luck and good Health,

Mary

much cheaper than the stuff they advertise on TV all the time too! I'll have to tell my daughter in law about this as she gets acne too.

I know. All that wasted time and money, and I could have just bought MoM!

Been on oral steroids for 6 weeks and tapering off. But, i did get acne on cheeks. I found calamine lotion before bed dried up the spots effectively as well.
